The list of 70 parallel sessions is now ready and interested participants can register themselves for the meeting and submit a short abstract for the parallel session of their choice. A preliminary list of confirmed invited plenary speakers is also available.
Early registration at 350€ will be possible starting February 10, 2012, extending through May 25th, 2012, after which the registration fee will be 400€. The student fee is 150€. Abstracts for parallel session presentations must be submitted by June 1, 2012, but preferably at the time of registration.
MG13 will take place July 1-7, 2012 at Stockholm University in Stockholm, Sweden. Preregistration will take place Sunday, July 1, and the meeting will officially open Monday morning with the Marcel Grossmann awards announcement. During the six day conference a wide variety of topics will be discussed in the morning plenary sessions beginning with mathematical topics on Monday, quantum aspects of gravity on Tuesday, precision tests of general relativity on Wednesday, relativistic astrophysics on Thursday, cosmology and astroparticle physics on Friday and the latest scientific news and the history of physics Saturday. There will be five plenary lectures each morning and up to twenty parallel sessions in the four weekday afternoons excluding Wednesday, which is left free for a trip and the evening conference banquet. The plenary lectures will be held in the Aula Magna lecture hall and the parallel sessions at the AlbaNova University Center, both easily reachable by public transportation from the city center.
Since 1975, the Marcel Grossmann Meetings (on Recent Developments in Theoretical and Experimental General Relativity, Gravitation, and Relativistic Field Theories) have been organized in order to provide opportunities for discussing recent advances in gravitation, general relativity and relativistic field theories, emphasizing mathematical foundations, physical predictions and experimental tests. The objective of these meetings is to elicit exchange among scientists that may deepen our understanding of spacetime structures as well as to review the status of ongoing experiments aimed at testing Einstein’s theory of gravitation either from the ground or from space.
